Animated Film

I wanted to juxtapose my story with two timelines (by combining animation and real life video footage): one is the timeline of the people I see, and the other is my timeline. How can people use nature to release pressure? They experience, record and view nature, and as I observe them. The film allows the lines of people in my frames interact with me. It’s as if I was under contemporary pressure as I was researching contemporary pressure.

I named this progress: See “Others’ Watching”. Like these people chose the way to face the pressure for me. Through their viewing, it reminded the audience of their existence in the lens of the picture, and also expresses the passage of time and the change of character's emotions and mood. At the same time, I wanted to show how “landscape" became what we saw, and how the events that happened here started and were captured by me.
